Poli Sci 3384F Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

PNL is one of the best profs I have had in political science at Western. He is very knowledgable in Canadian Politics especially and was very helpful with all assignments. He is approachable and cheerful. If you love political science, he is an excellent prof!

Those of you genuinely interested in Canadian Politics and discussion will do well. Get involved in class discussions, ask questions during office hours, and you will do well. If you take this course and don't really care about Canadian Politics, don't expect to get an A.

POL1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. PNL is a doll! His lectures are entertaining and imformative and he encourages participation from everyone. His exams are fair and based on lecture content - so show up for class! He even had a Bonus mark buzzword: "Romansch" on the final.

If your a quiet student you will survive, you will not have the best, but if you express your beliefs you will do very poorly in this class. He is very conceited, and marks like gestapo.

POL1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This professor has a very high opinion of himself. This translates to his students, as he expects nothing but the best. If you're interested in pursuing political science at university, then I recommend it. If your goal is fleshing out your political knowledge, STAY AWAY. The course is not very friendly to students searching for a high mark.

POL2230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

What an inspiring professor! There is no cutting corners in his classes though. He expects a lot from his students. Makes you really want to work hard though. He knows his material, a brilliant man. Office door is always open. Recommend his classes for sure! Do your readings, write essays in advance and participate and you will be fine!

Poli020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

In my year spent with PNL, I have found him to be rude, pompous, conceited, and an overall failure as a professor. I dreaded his classes, and it seemed as though his goal was to fail us. you shouldn't be fooled by his seemingly polite manner, and his British accent. The only advice I can give, is to avoid this class at any cost.

motheeff Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

this guy is by far the worst teacher i have ever had. he is completely sarcastic, pompas, marks hard, and speaks complete nonsense. i have never had a worse teacher in my entire life. he should be asahmed. the fact that he thinks he's a good teacher even furthers my hatred for this man.

An Incredibly Hard Marker!!- as almost all will agree...pretends as if he was the alpha-omega of the university while being a mediocre professor at best.

Polsc230 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Overall he seems like a nice person, but does not fit the role of a professor. He is very conceited, and his marking is random. Sometimes you will get a good mark for something poor and sometimes you will get a horrible mark for work that has been very well done, it all depends if he agrees with you. I expect more from a university professor.
